Georginio Wijnaldum scored his first ever Premier League goal away from home as Liverpool continue their perfect start with a 1-2 win at Tottenham.
The Reds nearly got off to a dream start but a Roberto Firmino goal was disallowed in the opening minute due to Sadio Mane being offside. Liverpool then began to see Spurs work their way into the match but were able to break through first in the 39th minute, when a shot was initially saved but the attempted clearance failed, allowing Wijnaldum to head the ball just over the line. It took 58 appearances away from home for the Dutchman to finally score. Firmino and Mane would link up again for what would be the match winner just before the hour mark, when Mane's shot was spilled by Michel Vorm and Firmino had the easiest of tap-ins to seal the victory. A late Spurs goal wiped out the clean sheet but it is another title-contending performance for Liverpool, despite a relatively quiet Mo Salah. Sep 15 - 9:45 AM
